Catching Up

This set has moons as well as flowers.  The bird was in the ink shape, I just helped him be more defined.

All the flowers.  The center bottom is inspired by some morning glories I see on my morning walk.  I don't think the large piece at the top is finished yet, but I'm not sure what it needs either.

These colors asked for something more tropical.
These were drawn with a gold resist paint.  Once that was dry, I filled in with watercolor as well as Mermaid Marker and ink filled water brushes.  Fun!

I had a summer, how about you?  After spending the last two summers dealing with treatment and family, this year I was actually able to spend a little time in the studio.  I took a great online pen and ink class with Get Messy, and I combined the techniques I learned with the 1,000 mandala project I've been working on since the beginning of the year.  Most of these are on 6" x 9" 140lb cold press watercolor paper, because that's what I have a lot of, and because this is a nice portable size to add drawing to when traveling or hanging out at the local coffee shop.

I'm also participating in the Blog Along for September, hosted by Effy Wild  It seems like a fun way to get back into this blogging groove, as well as touching base with all y'all.  Maybe you want to play too?  Check Effy's page for more details.

See you tomorrow!


  1. Yay! So glad you're playing along. <3

  2. So glad you had a Summer, Andi and was able to spend time in the studio. That's so good for our souls, isn't it! I love your paintings. I'm very found of black on ink. Very nice!
